Through Their Eyes - Peru Part I

A big bucket list item can be checked off!!!! We went to Peru for Spring Break and what a break from the ordinary it was. We concentrated our vacation on the Sacred Valley and it turned out to be a great idea. Yes, we only went to the Sacred Valley and missed other fabulous locations but really, there wasn't enough time to see everything Peru has to offer. I guess we have to go back. Anyway, our time there was unhurried and we enjoyed every minute of it. Here, without further ado are the favorite things we did in Peru's Sacred Valley

Strolling colonial Cusco - This town, My god... It was stunning.




Cusco is the gate to the Sacred Valley, it is a cannot-be-missed destination, if you ask me... But go at your own risk. The altitude can be brutal, not for my kids though... They laughed in the face of the evil altitude sickness, I tell ya. Nothing can stop those two. I, on the other hand, it knocked me on my butt. Fortunately, just one day so we followed doctors orders (take it easy, rest a lot, drink lots of coca leave tea and eat light) and by the following day, I was feeling like new.

Touring incredible amazing Inca ruins in Cusco such as Qurikancha, Saksaywaman, Puka Pukara among others... They are so many...




Visiting the Inca ruins of Pisac



Shopping for little treasures at the markets

Taking pictures with super cute animals (I mean, how could you not...) and making friends with the locals





Learning about textile making in Chinchero


Dressing up is never out of the question

Learning about experimental cropping in Moray - It is all about quinoa on these parts

And salt extraction in Maras





This is it for this post. I have more pictures and Machu Picchu... Coming up next. Stay tuned
